This forum has rules like any other: it's why some users are banned, it's why Batty was no longer allowed to post his Batty awards. But there aren't any listed, spammers are just requested to leave. Could somebody set up the board rules and make these available to all users?

I think the forums used to be well when it was completely self moderated, but I stand by BBP: a bit of good sense (and good taste) does not harm anyone.

Gail answers questions.She's a little picky on which ones.So why don't you ask her what you gotta do to get kicked off this forum? Who knows she might post some "rules".Stranger things have happend. :wink:

So, I stand by BBP in that good sense and good taste both go a long way... But I don't think we need a list of rules other than "use your good sense" and being warned by the moderator when it comes to it... Yes some of us have families and kids around, some of us even open this forum at work (naughty, naughty), so I guess there is a more objective issue at stake than simply the bizarre and uncomfortable aspect of a pic as grotesque as that one in question...

1. Ban all Brazilians.

2. Dutch women should be allowed to do whatever they want, because they're awesome.

3. That's about it.

I honestly can't think of a single rule that I'd like to see enforced here. There is nothing that I can imagine someone saying, a picture someone would post or a concept someone can invoke that would require a rule FOR THIS SITE. That stuff is for other sites. The content of FZ material insults, parodies, makes fun of, even bullies people that FZ doesn't agree with, so why exactly is that ok for him, but not for us? I wouldn't say that for a Dora the Explorer web site, but FZ's site? People here shouldn't need their hand held when they encounter Titties & Beer, Jewish Princess, Catholic Girls, Bobby Brown, Suicide Chump, Jumbo Go Away, Bwana Dik etc...
If we really need a rule, I suggest posting on every page: "If you are tender-hearted and can't handle it when people favor extreme views, images, likes or dislikes that are different than yours, please expect that there is a very good chance that you may be insulted or worse. Thank you."

Or you could just preface your posts appropriately...

Quote:
Warning! This post contains Boobies!


or

Quote:
Warning! This post contains disturbing pictures of old men getting it on and may well haunt your dreams for years to come.

I bet there's an app for that.

of course, a ruler would be handy for drawing a straight line from where this thread started to wherever the hell it is now...

A spoiler tag would go a long way towards solving most of this.

Really? You think Gail would let porn and girls shitting themselves to be on here? Maybe she hasn't read that. I've seen warning stickers on CDs now for at least a decade but no evidence that the material within has been censored.

I didn't say anything about what I think. You asked for a spoiler tag, and I presented one option for your perusal.
If you have any questions about the tag's content...ask it's author.

Oh, I didn't think of that as a spoiler tag, I thought you were commenting on censorship. There are some forums (*cough* updated and upgraded *cough*) that have a [spoiler][/spoiler] tag that will hide pictures or messages or whatever until a user clicks the "Show" button. I was confuzzled, sorry.

If you can hook me up with that e-mail address, that would be really cool.

Sorry. Thought I had it, but it turns out it's for Gordon Ramsey.

so long as it doesn't cause a murder

status quo here is unmoderated/self-moderating, with mega-rare appearances of the admin scrutinizer due to a Image ... it's only bad timing if you get caught posting stuff that would normally go unoticed & eventually get buried on page 3, like the recent grandmothers tour reports, the where's-my-downloads crew, etc.
